Economic & Educational Empowerment of Flood Affected

Educational & Economic Empowerment of Flood Affected Women & Children through Improved Livelihood and Safe Learning Environment

Pakistan has a long history of being disproportionately affected by natural disasters. The greater frequency and increasing intensity of these disasters have had an adverse impact on the livelihoods and food security of the affected population; particularly for the poorest and most vulnerable living in the remote, rural parts of the country. Between 2010 and 2012, Pakistan experienced three consecutive floods due to unprecedented monsoon rains. The 2010 floods, which had a devastating impact due to its scale and severity, took the lives of 2,000 people, and destroyed 1.6 million housing units and depleted 1.5 million livestock. The lives and livelihoods of some 20 million people, an estimated 12 percent of Pakistan’s population, were impacted and almost one-fifth of the country’s total landmass was submerged, resulting in severe levels of damage. The rural areas of Sindh, Balochistan and Punjab were hit again by flooding in 2011 and 2012, significantly setting back long-term planning and recovery interventions.
